Should The New Jobs Plan Allow For Unpaid Internships?

Do you think a internships can or should be unpaid?

Commentary: The debate is whether a skilled worker or college student should be allowed to enter into an agreement with a employer to learn a new skill. Should they be allowed to do this for free?  We are in a historically unusual environment where quickly a vast number of older occupations and industries have faded away leaving job seekers with backgrounds that are unsuitable for many of today's available jobs.  

You can kind of think of a world were one day you are on the farm milking a cow and the next day are told you need to use an IPAD in Chinese.  What do you think of allowing an internships for a 30 year auto production worker or a 25 year successful  veteran  VP of  a failed Bank who is unemployed job seeker?    So should we change the policy or law?  Perhaps one that encourages job growth? 

Looking forward to your comments below?

While there are laws around internships, particularly non-paying internships, I believe they should be readily available to those willing to learn by doing.

The "desperate times, desperate measures" speech would surely be applicable now.
